St Vincent de Paul Society

The aim of the group is to bring social justice and the friendship of true charity to all those in need.

There is no need which is outside of our concern – be it sickness or disability, mental or physical; family problems, social or economic; loneliness in old age: the alcoholic, the drug addict, the social misfit.

Meetings take place once per month on the last Thursday at 7pm in St Joseph’s Parish Hall. Visits to clients are normally weekly.


For details or if you wish to volunteer, please email Jim Logan:

Our work is the Gospel message in action:
